Mrs. Dufault from Worcester MA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Leveled Work Center

My students need a structured work center that is organized and clearly labeled. Having materials laminated and in their own individual bin will help maintain the tasks and keep them organized and easy to find.

My Students

I work in a substantially separate classroom that serves students diagnosed with Autism. They are in 4th, 5th and 6th grade. My students have many interests and talents, such as, music, dancing, building with magnetic blocks and computers. All of my students are working on individual goals in ELA, math, social/behavioral, speech and fine/gross motor skills. We focus on increasing independence with activities of daily living also. My students vary on academic levels in math and English language arts. Some students are working on making requests, while others are working on comprehension.

My Project

I am creating a center that is able to incorporate all levels in my classroom. Each student has their own individual picture schedule, with three pictures, that changes every day. Each individual picture on their schedule will match a picture on a task box. The student will locate the box that matches their schedule, complete the task, and return the box to the shelf. Once the student completes that task box they will move the picture on their schedule to the "all done" box. The tasks within the boxes are laminated to help with the longevity of the materials. Most tasks use Velcro to help with fine motor skills and also organization of the materials.

The tasks within this center are created to incorporate all learning levels.

They focus on ELA, math and science. I am also working on having my students learn how to follow a picture schedule and increase their independence with this skill. This will help in other areas, such as, brushing their teeth, making a sandwich, work schedules, etc.
